Working Women Violence with Intimate Relationships: A Study on Changing Women Position at Dhaka City in Bangladesh

Abul Kalam, Rehana Nasreen


Working women violence with intimate relationships is a common social issue in Bangladesh. Over 100 studies have found that women self-report as much perpetration of violent behavior as men (Straus, 1999).  These findings have generated a great deal of controversy part because there has been no theoretical framework advanced to explain women's violence and working women are suffering problem both family and work place. Various study reports have appeared recently in the popular press about broken women intimate relationships by the male dominating social system. These conclusions are oversimplifications that fail to place the occurrence of women's violence in a broader social and relational context. The criminal justice system also struggles with how to deal with the issue of working women's violence with male partners at the work place as well as intimate partner. Most interventions for domestic violence offenders designed for men and do not necessarily translate well to female offenders.  It is difficult in the area of women's violence for these interventions to meet women's needs.  The purpose of this study was to find out working women's situation at workplace and use of violence in intimate relationships.
